Windows Vista - what services to stop
Posted on 2010-01-03
I have a Dell with windows Vista. At startup the system is very slow. I have reduced all the startup programs and went through some google articles on which services to disable. I'm very cautious on what to disable - as not being a comp genius - if I end up disabling something - it'll be an issue to undo it.
Even after that - on startup, I checked on system configuration and there are a bunch of services still running. Most of them are microsoft ones - I'm assuming we should not be disabling them.
So these are the non microsoft ones that I see running:
Andrea ST Filters service
Apple Mobile Device
creative labs licensing service
creative service for CDROM access
Intel PROSET/Wireless Event log
Intel Matrix Storage Event Monitor
Intel PROSet Wireless registry service
SupportSoft sprocket service
Can I disable any of these or put them in as Delayed start. Any more recommendations on speeding up Vista.
